A Day in the Life of Polaroid Summer

Posted on

Written by Micaiah Walker of Polaroid Summer

As a new band (started in 2017) we don’t (YET) have many or any epic stories or wow moments. There was this time we saw a guy on the news who was caught on camera robbing a house and he was wearing a Polaroid Summer Shirt, but that’s not really a feel good story.

I was planning …

The Faim: The Moments That Inspired Our New Fave Band

Posted on
We’ve been loving Australian music lately. It seems like their scene is pumping out incredible bands at a speed we can’t keep up with, but aren’t complaining! Today, it’s The Faim. We can only describe their single “Saints of the Sinners” as a football anthem for America’s most emo NFL team. Plus, they’ve got the Pete Wentz stamp of approval: he cowrote the track. Working with our faves from Mark …

Still + Storm & The Smell of Teen Spirit

By Rachel Raymond of Still + Storm

Kurt Cobain’s influence through Nirvana is something that has stood the test of time, and his voice of rebellion and acceptance is something the world needs in 2018. With the recent anniversary of his passing last week, him and his legacy are on our minds more than ever. If you think about it, we have an entire …

 There are a lot of aspects that go into discovering music. Whether you hear a song in passing, see a super cool album cover or have a friend recommend a new band or artist, you can’t deny that first impressions are important. So, when we heard LA-based indie/alt group BADTALKERS described as “if the Beastie Boys …

Sleep State & The Unifying Energy of Weezer

Written by Sleep State

In 2010, at the annual US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, I had the privilege of attending one of the best and most memorable concerts of my life. Seeing Weezer’s set, more than any other experience, has showed me just how much I was missing by not seeing live music performed more often.

Immediately upon arriving, I …

Music & Mental Health with X. ARI

Written by X. ARI

When I was a kid, I didn’t realize how much singing eased my anxiety. I would sing just because it made me feel good. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started to use creativity as a crutch to get me through my first episode of depression. I didn’t know how to get the help I needed when …

Appreciating Pop Music with Becca Krueger

Written by Becca Krueger

I have a fierce love for pop music. From my first Britney Spears CD to the pop divas of 2017, I’ve always been drawn to the infectious energy of contemporary pop. Unfortunately, as I passed the pre-teen Radio Disney days, it became less and less “cool” to be interested in this kind of music. Top 40 music is often considered …

Dreaming of Deer Creek with Kayls

Posted on 2 m read

Written by Kayls

I grew up going to summer concerts at my local amphitheater in Noblesville, IN. It was called Deer Creek at the time. Since then the name has been changed to Klipsh Music Center, and now as I’m writing this I’ve realized they changed the name once again. Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center, but it doesn’t really have the same ring to …

Seattle & The Yes Moment

Written by Daniel of Spirit Award

When I’m given the opportunity to share a story about our band of some sort, I immediately go searching my brain for notable things we’ve done or some interesting story about us. The question always for me is; what fuels me to keep making music and what I want from creating it?

Some backstory: I grew …
